In a preview clip from the new episode of ‘Sarah Palin’s Alaska,’ Mama Grizzly takes us out on the high seas and shows us how she’s ‘all diva!’

Sarah Palin, 46, can not only climb glaciers and confront grizzly bears — she can hold her own on a fishing boat! The star of TLC’s Sarah Palin’s Alaska, has a family tradition: she and her husband of 22 years, Todd Palin, go salmon fishing on the Fourth of July! If you didn’t know what a ‘Salmon Run’ was, you’re in luck! On the upcoming Nov. 28 episode, we get to go with the Palins to Bristol Bay and catch some of those orange-pink Osteichthyes!

But, the episode will definitely tug at your heartstrings! Sarah takes her daughter Piper, 9, on a family reunion to meet her little cousin Matthew, who has Down’s syndrome. This reminds Sarah of her own son, Trig, 2, who was also born with the affliction, and she says it’s a glimpse into the future of what life will be like with Trig — it gives her “hope.”

Don’t forget to tune in this Sunday at 9PM ET!
